I’ve seen some heated arguments out there lately about the upcoming SHE-HULK “Disney+” series, something I’d never have expected to be an issue a few years ago even. However it’s now 2020 and everything seems to quickly escalate into some sort of major online argument or politicized debate, yes even She-Hulk has become a goddamn hot-topic! The big issue at hand is what version if the character we’ll see in MCU?! For most of her existence in the Marvel comics, She-Hulk was known for being well, let’s not beat around the bush…NOT particularly ugly. She was, for me as a kid growing up in the 1980’s one of my very first crushes. The Hulk was and still is my favorite superhero and when I saw She-Hulk for the first time I was admittedly an instant fan! Yeah slightly embarrassing…I guess? Or what the hell, maybe not!
She-Hulk in the 1980’s was also one of the most fun loving characters in all of the Marvel Universe, seeming fully confident in her green skin. Jennifer Walters really embraced her inner “Hulk”, unlike her cousin Bruce. She dealt with plenty of sexism in the pages of the classic comics, but many today are accusing the many of the male writers/artists of the past for blatantly exploiting and sexualizing her character. She-Hulk in the 1980’s was indeed a bit of sex symbol in the comics as were plenty of the ultra sculpted male characters but let’s be fair here, She-Hulk was indeed through the years given some of the most ridiculously cringeworthy scantily clad moments by artists. That being said, the classic third wall breaking John Byrne run of She-Hulk in 1989, was a truly unique approach even though it obvious he was truly delighted drawing her every curve.
I need to re-read those to see how it holds up today and see just how offensive it might be in 2020? Up until recently, I’d thought 80’s She-Hulk would be a great basis for a new series but times have changed right? Now She-Hulk, in the current comics is basically a female version of The Incredible Hulk, she’s essentially rejected her more feminine, “sexy” side & has serious regrets about her past looks and behavior. So an MCU Disney Plus She-Hulk series faces the issue, should She-Hulk be a more serious crime drama in the age of #metoo or a comedic, third wall breaking courtroom comedy?
Should the show be a more politicized statement on current affairs in the age of a sexist chump like Donald Trump? A wild female Jekyl & Hyde monster thriller? Or a sort of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” self aware NYC comedy? My idea is how about we combine ALL the approaches into one. The best of all worlds? Start the show off as Jennifer Walters navigates through the current landscape of things, as ridiculous as things are in the Trump era combined with how over the top PC things have sometimes become at the same time? Perhaps Jennifer’s Hulk out starts off as more of a comedic creature feature, and she quickly figures out how to tame her inner Hulk thanks to Ruffalo’s Banner Hulk.
Whatever they decide the real issue remains, should She-Hulk reject her “sexy” side and go full monster? How should she appear? In 2020 it might be frowned upon for her to keep that 1980s, 90s & 2000s look and instead embrace the more ultra muscular modern “Hulk” look. I think I’d be happy with either, but my final thought is a blend of the two is what would work best. They way I’ve seen her depicted at times has bothered me a bit, like when she essentially looks like a ridiculous green skinned porn star with no muscle tone. Here’s the best look in my opinion of what the MCU She-Hulk should probably look like, the more powerful amazonian look:
What do you think?!
I just had to take a second quick to say that I hate this Jared Leto Joker. Totally Sucks!! Maybe the worst thing ever? Totally idiotic. A Nu-Metal/Rap Metal band from the year 2000 is missing their lead singer. The lovechild of Lil Wayne, Fred Durst and Marilyn Manson and some drunk Juggalos. The real Joker has class and a cool ass purple suit. Every second I look at this stupid ass picture I get more angry….AAAARG! Please give it up Hollywood….
Ok enough about that….
Yeah we totally INSANE BRO!! ICP wit da muddafukin’ JOKA!! Muddafukin’ FAAAAYGO time Beeeyatches!!! Muddafukin’ Juggalo Jared jump around like a muddafukin’ lunatic!! Craaaazy clown ass crackas!!!!
Oh yeah and check this rad video out, it pretty much explains it ALL!!
So did everyone out there get a good look today at the new Superman today? It seems the new photo of Henry Cavill as Supes is causing quite a buzz online today. What I am confused about is why these new movie super heroes seem to be constructing their costumes out of basketballs?!
Seriously this is the new trend- The new Spider-man also has a costume constructed from basketballs.
Hmmm….not really all that into that look personally and geezus it’s gotta be hot as shit! This new extreme look for super heroes is actually kinda lame. I have got to be honest, I pretty much can firmly say that all the super hero costumes so far in the movies kinda blow. Even Batman, looks pretty lame with all of his clunky armor even though the movies have been pretty rad. What I will say is that these super hero movies will not age well, honestly I’m not too sure how long they will continue to keep my attention. They are an amusing watch the first time but upon second viewing end up being pretty flat and totally plastic. That being said the new Superman looks more like a friendlier version of Bizzaro. It appears as if Superman has been given the Chris Nolan dark hero look which personally doesn’t really work for me….
So here we have a first look at the Dwarves of the Hobbit! I realize that this pic is all over the net right now but really how could I not post it here today? I have to say this makes my day just to know that Peter Jackson is actually making this movie!!! Check these guys out…
Here we are one step closer to journeying back to Middle Earth! I can’t wait…And
in case you missed the reveal yesterday’s dwarves here they are again..
I am sure everyone has heard about The Phantom Menace arriving in theaters once again soon this time in 3-D? Geez just when we were all about to forget about that mega turd bomb of a film you just knew Lucas was going to find a way to bring that shit back and try and shove the turds down our throats once again! This time he means business too! This time he really wants you to see just how fucking god damn awful this films was-so he went and made it in 3-D…No this time you will NEVER erase it from your memory!
Apparently he’s trying to get interest in the Star Wars merchandise again, um Lucas do you really need yet another paycheck for this shit? How can you sleep at night? He also said he wants to bring it to a younger audience, attempting to infect young minds with this wretched steaming pile! Well brace yourself once again for a good long look at some of the WORST acting and the WORST big budget CG money can buy….
Ok all of my doubts are officially gone about the upcoming television adaptation of The Walking Dead. I just recently saw some of the stills taken for this epic series and it literally blew my mind!! I checked them out at Bloody Disgusting and thought I really needed to put a few of them up here in case anyone had any doubts on just how cool this show is shaping up to be. First off the this image here of Rick Grimes walking on the highway practically gave me the chills upon first sight. Andrew Lincoln who’s playing Rick looks fantastic-don’t you think??
This makes me kinda wonder exactly how this tv series is going to start off. Will they choose to use the 28 Days Later Beginning?? I am crossing my fingers that the answer is no. I think that opening could turn alot of people off from the tv show-to be honest the first time I read the Walking Dead, at least issue one, I simply passed it off as some cheap Image rip-off comic that was cranked out to jump on the zombie bandwagon. Well shortly thereafter I was encouraged to read the whole first trade while at the comic shop. The clerk even promised me that if I gave it another shot and still didn’t like it I could bring the trade back for a full refund. I read the first six isssues and was hooked ever since.
Anyway there are some amazing pictures here as well they posted of the the actual zombies appearing on the show Continue reading
